With fan support, Tigers take one from Twins, 6-5

There's an old saying: a win's a win. In the Tigers' case, they'll take one no matter how pretty or ugly it is.

In the 8th inning, Alex Avila’s double rattled along the short fence near the left-field line before the ball bounced up toward a fan standing in a small seating area jutting out toward the field.

The umpires halted play, conferred briefly and then made the game’s decisive call: fan interference and a run for the Tigers.

Jhonny Peralta was allowed to score from first on the play, breaking an 8th inning tie, and Detroit went on to beat the Minnesota Twins, 6-5.

Al Alburquerque (2-1) pitched an inning of scoreless relief and Jose Valverde pitched the ninth for his 13th save while Minnesota's Alex Burnett (1-4) lost.
